It’s not slated to open for another year, but Fairfax County is building a HUGE sports complex. It’s called The St. James, which will include ice hockey, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, squash, golf, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and quite a few other things.

Of course, places like this just can’t exist without a ceremonial groundbreaking, and the Capitals’ very own Alex Ovechkin participated Thursday, alongside CSN’s Chick Hernandez. The complex is going up at 6805 Industrial Road, Springfield, VA. 22151.

The St. James is scheduled to open in September of 2018.
